Luke Cage Live Action Movie

Luke Cage MovieWe've been hearing about a live action Luke Cage movie since quite a while. But nothing concrete so far. There's reason to hope though according to LA Times' Geoff Boucher:

"Speaking of Luke Cage, a.k.a. Power Man, I hear that there’s more talk underway about putting the urban hero into his own film and that a notable Hollywood star is now having (very) preliminary talks with Marvel Studios about the property and its potential."

For those who don't know him, Luke Cage, aka Power Man, is a fictional black superhero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. A streetwise youth, the man called Lucas was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit. In exchange for parole, Lucas clandestinely underwent an experimental procedure, originally intended to generate immunity to all illness; instead, it inadvertently granted him steel-hard skin and heavier, enhanced muscle. He then becomes a sort of super-enhanced private detective before meeting Iron Fist and joining the 'Heroes For Hire ' crew later on.

I heard that Director John Singleton (who directed Fast and Furious 2) is likely to helm the project.

The movie Luke Cage hasn't been officially confirmed yet though. Some are even speculating that Marvel is rather considering to make a Heroes for Hire movie which would feature both Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
